    If new Macbooks are unveiled Tuesday...
    When can they be expected to be in stores? Vista doesn't work well with my universitys course pages, and I keep getting booted off during quizzes and stuff, so I really need to get a Macbook. But I hate to buy one today when in 4 days I could get one of the new ones and maybe save me some money!
    Thanks

    It's usually the same day or the next. Sometimes though it could be a few days.

    Yeah, with the announcement now official, I would definitely wait the few extra days for a new one!

    That's less likely the fault of the OS and more likely a settings, browser or security issue.
    Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!

    I thought so too, but I talked to a few people and they've had the same problem. I took it to a computer store and they checked it out and said it was fine, and couldn't figure out what the problem was.
    I guess school my colleges page is just buggy, but it just doesn't mix well with Vista, and I really don't want to chance it with taking another quiz and losing it.
